If I send a long SMS (160+ characters), will the message be parted out and will I be charged for each part of the message?

If you send a message that contains more than 160 characters, your message will be split up into multiple parts. The message will be re-assembled before it reaches the destination handset.

You will will be billed for each segment of 160 characters for standard messages and billed for each segment of 70 characters if your message contains any unicode characters such as Emoji's (😀, 😎, etc...).

Example 1 of 3:

How will a standard message be billed

"What is cooler than a unicorn that can shoot lasers? This test message, thats what!"

83 characters = 1 segment

Example 2 of 3:

How will a message with Emoji's be billed :

"What is cooler than a unicorn 🦄 that can shoot lasers? This test message, thats what!"

84 characters = 2 segments of up to 70 characters each.

Example 3 of 3:

How will a long message be billed:

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor. Aenean massa. Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus."

191 characters = 2 segments of up to 160 characters each.
